Moosehead Pale Ale beer now available in 4 and 15 pack cans

PKBR Staff Writer Published 13 April 2018

Moosehead Breweries said that its Moosehead Pale Ale beer is available in 4 pack 16 oz cans, and 12oz 15 pack cans across the US.

Moosehead Breweries is Canada's oldest independent brewery, situated in Saint John, New Brunswick. The brewery was established in 1867 by Susannah Oland‎ and family.

The 5% alcohol by volume (ABV) Moosehead Pale Ale is a sessionable, top-fermented ale, which is made with 100% Canadian barley.

The beer features floral aromatics and warm caramel notes.

Moosehead Pale Ale was the company’s first beer to be branded Moosehead. Moose Red, as it is referred to in the Maritimes, has a recipe dating back to 1931.

It rolled off the line in 1933, just five short years after third-generation Oland, George Bauld, discovered the Moosehead name registration in the files at his Saint John brewery.

Moosehead US brand director Georgia Homsany said: "Moosehead Pale Ale is known as 'The Beer that Built the Brewery', and we're excited to bring this beloved beer to US consumers.

"Pale Ale is one of the most popular styles right now in beer and we wanted to give US beer lovers the opportunity to access another product in the Moosehead family with a different taste profile. The lower IBUs make it more approachable for a variety of beer consumers."

The company said Moosehead Pale Ale is medium bodied and fermented at warmer temperatures to impart its floral aromatics.

Moosehead is still family owned and is operated by the fifth and sixth generations of Oland family members.

The company brews and sells its Moosehead lager across Canada, in the US, and in several other countries across the world.
